Aries Tilda

Yes, I'm an Aries? Typical? I don't know, I'm not much into horoscope, but what I know is that my stone is diamond (wohooo ...) and my colour red (not!).

I really enjoyed colouring this one, it's gorgeous but so are all the other stamps from this collection. I think this collection is a tricky one. Zodiac means 12 signs and you simply must have them all. Don't you agree? I'm not there yet, but on a good way ... lol




For this card I used:
  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: Maja design
  • stamp: Aries Tilda (Zodiac coll., 2014)
  • dies: Magnolia - swirl, floral tabs, bride bow
  • white lace
  • cheesecloth
  • flowers from I am roses, LLC
  • stickles glue (stardust)
  • white crackle paint
  • frantage (shabby white).

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Magnolia down under: Blue, brown and white
  2. Deep Ocean challenge (TOP 3): For a friend
Thank you for visiting my blog today. Have a great weekend!  t.
